UK Energy Sector with EU Skills

Nature of Business

Supporting the Gas, Electricity and Water Utility Sectors across the UK in providing the right skills and development for their people

What did they need?

The regulated businesses had identified a vital need to renew their skilled workforce over the coming years. These businesses are all regulated and as such they needed to work in partnership with their regulators (Ofgem and Ofwat) to identify their specific needs and find the appropriate resources to fill the projected skills gaps over a 20 year horizon.

How did we help them?

Business Navigators used their expertise and extensive network of contacts to bring together the key stakeholders across the industry. Together we developed a manpower resource model that clearly illustrated the skills needs of each sector and played a key role in presenting this to the regulators.

What benefits did it bring?

  • Over 300m of Skills Funding for the Gas and Electricity Sectors over the next 5 years.
  • Clear and objective models that show industry wide requirements for key skills projected 20 years ahead and showing exactly what skills are needed when and how much it will cost.
  • A tool that each company is using to plan their workforce renewal programmes.
  • Industry collaboration to find joint solutions to industry wide skills issues.
  • A framework for regulatory agreement and monitoring of skills investment that looks forward over 20 years.
